4D 3N Hospital stay for Abg SN


In my previous blog post (SN Jr passes the fever baton to Abg SN) I did mention that Abg SN is down with fever. I thought it was normal fever, but then the fever went on and off for the whole week during the last week. I worried that it might lead to prolonged fever as it was already one week Fevers that last longer than three days and begin at 40°C, should cause for concern. If left untreated, this illness can lead to the development of a serious condition

Even though I've performed the C.A.L.M procedure at home, it didn't subdue the fever away. Oh, btw C.A.L.M stands for :-
  • Check the temperature (37°C and above is high temperature)
  • Assess for other symptoms (e.g. : dehydration, difficulty of breathing, vomiting)
  • Lower the temperature (dress them in light clothes, sponge your child with water or place a cool washcloth on his forehead)
  • Monitor child's behavior and temperature (After your child's fever is down, watch him for signs of improvement)

I was worried that the high fevers may cause seizure so I decided to go see Paeditrician at Hospital Pantai. He then decided that Abg SN should be further monitored at the hospital.

It was a pretty emotional situation to both Abg SN and mommy in the first place. The first procedure before being warded, is for the medical team at the Emergency Section has to take his blood sample and insert the needle drip tip on his hand. Abg SN cries out loud that he somehow caused the team to feel nervous and a bit shaky while taking Abg SN's bloods. Poor my little boy, of course it hurt him and it hurt me as well seeing him like that.

Not to forget the fact that I'll feel sick when I see sight of blood. I try hard not to faint at the sight of my son’s blood. As a mother, my job is to nurse boo-boos my child no matter how 'sick' I am feeling at that time. 
It took the team quite some time before finally obtained few pint bottles of Abg SN's bloods; I could feel that the room began to spin. I broke out in a cold sweat and I could feel all the color drain from my face. Thankfully, I managed to keep hold until the end of the procedure..phewwwww.

Through the sample from his nose and his blood, Abg SN was diagnosed of having Influenza B which is extremely contagious and is accompanied by various symptoms that can make a child feel very ill.  Thus he should be put in the isolation ward to prevent from spreading the virus to others. 

Symptoms of influenza B are the same as the symptoms of other types of the flu. Most people will experience symptoms such as coughing, fever, headache, body aches, exhaustion and congestion. Influenza B is more fatal in children. 

Influenza B normally has a very abrupt beginning and can last for up to seven days. Children are at highest risk for having serious complications from influenza B so they should be carefully monitored for worsening symptoms and other complications. 

Abg SN was warded at Pantai Hospital from Saturday to Tuesday (4 days 3 nights). I could only stay with him for few hours during the daytime as SN Jr is still breastfeeding and we wanted to avoid SN Jr from staying near to his brother. So, Daddy and Ayoh Syo (my brother Asyo) who is on semester break took turns to stay with Abg SN at the hospital.

+- Day 1 -+

+- Day 2 -+

+- Day 3 -+

The total bill for the 4D 3N stay at Pantai Hospital is around RM 3.3K, thankfully it was covered under the life insurance/medical card that hubby had been paying every month for the 4 of us.. phewwww. Kalau idok habis gaji sebulan mommy, ehehe *eleh, bukan mommy yg bayar pon...Daddy jugak yang bayar ngeeeee*.

Pssssttt : 2-3 malam ni suhu badan Abg SN panas balik. A friend of mine suggested that we should 'azan' our house and after that tabur garam keliling rumah; manalah tahu kalau2 ada 'makhluk' yang menumpang duduk with us sampaikan budak ber2 ni asyik demam je.  Should we?

Yatie, kat Jepun kalau demam takde ambik2 darah ye. Sebab Sofiy (umi dan Sofiy) dah lali dah kena cucuk ambik darah. Nak tunggu menitik tu satu hal kan punya lama. Bukan macam ambik darah orang dewasa.Sampaikan asal demam je Sofiy ajak pegi klinik nak ambik darah. Berkutik pun tak dia...sebab dah biasa.

Apapun semoga SN cepat sembuh ye...
